We produce the Leading Phosphate of the world. It is the cheapest. It is the_ best. It'is a quick, vigorous fertilizer. It increases the crops.. : ,-,'t*>

cent, becomes gradually available. Experts certify to its having \.llne\3 plant food green as it comes from the mine, of over $S3; per ton as compared with com-
mercial acidulated fertilizers, and no danger in its use. The analysis of our Soft Phosphate, as given by Serge Malyvan, of Ocala, is as follows:

Insoluble! Silicate! and Sand...... ......18.61 I Phosphoric: Acid.. 27.63 I Oxide of Iron .....74 I Magnesia and Soda 6.59
Carbonate 4.561| Equivalent to tone Phosphate! Lime.......60.70 I j Aluminum 2.07 \ 6.55
He says your Soft Phosphate, referring to the Belleviexv Soft Phosphate, will be soluble, by gradual steep, under influence of rain water, provided' is perfectly
burnt and pulverized in fine powder.
Serge Maly van says that after analyzing samples of Soft Phosphate from. different mines throughout the State, that the only soluble Soft Phosphate is con-
tained in an area of about six miles at and around Belleview.
The Belleview Soft Phosphate especially good for peach, pear and orange trees, grape vines and strawberries and for cotton and corn it has no equal.
The analysis: of our Soft Phosphate shows: that every element it contains i is absolutely essential as plant food, and every intelligent man will see< the importanceof
buying plant food at so little cost per ton. .

< ';,


As Florida oranges are now a staple fruit in the English markets, to obtain profitable prices, in the future it will only be necessary to export good quality and
land oranges in good condition in the foreign markets. .
.. Messrs. Smith & Crouch, one of the largest, test and most reliable fruit firms in England, say of.the Liverpool nurlet, that the demand is now so large that 5,000
boxes, weekly, could be handled up to January 1st, with satisfactory results if the fruit is sound on arrival. .
*,. As one of the largest exporters of apples in New York and as a large importer 01 fruit from England, my knowlfdgo of the carrying ability of steamers enablesme
to select the best to ship by.
Representing the best tirms in Liverpool and Glasgow, and having my own house in London, are also further reason why shippers should send through me.
',' In order to export oranges, shippers can consign their fruit to me to New York. If on examination it is in condition( to forward, I will have the same placed on the
.I.best and fastest steamer and send a Bill of Lading as evidence of shipment to shipper. If not sound enough to t"xport, I will either turn the.lot over to any New York
-fi m the owner may designate,.orell'it: .myself at auction.
The best steamers land their cargoes in Liverpool, so that a cable report of sales is received in New York in twelve days after, sailing. A check covering about the
f. a *.mntof the proceeds is then sent on account to the shipper. by me. In twenty days from date of shipment from Florida it is thus possible to have the proceeds in
the hands of the shippers.
I Please note the following facts : -
Large sizes of oranges, 112's-126's, bring as much as 150's and 176's. No matter if oranges are shipped green anti art- sour, the earliest possible shipments pay.
A;. Dead Green Spanish Oranges always bring the highest! prices, being the only kind in the market. Oranges must not be shipped from New York later than December
1st. There is no demand after the. holidays until March 1st. .
', Advances of 75c. per box on your fruit will be made to.such shippers. as need money, and such are authorized to draw on me with Bills of Lading attached.
Mu Further. particulars and stencils will be furnished by
